Going Green

Tags

, , , , ,

For this Saint Patrick’s Day, I’m going green!  The Sisters In Stamping designers were challenged this week to create either something representative of this holiday or to focus on the color green.  I decided to once again pull out my Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack as well as some other Sale-a-bration (SAB) rewards. I just love the glimmer paper that was made available from the additional SAB items release on February 21st.

This birthday card is clean and simple.  I stamped the food truck in StazOn ink so that I could add color using my Aqua Painters.  I then fussy cut the truck so that it could be popped up on the face of my card.

I added a bit of glimmer to my cupcake top by using the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush.  The Flirty Flamingo envelope paper was the perfect pairing of color for the greens and white used on this card.  And a piece of doily on the underside of my banner sentiment added another layer of softness and texture.

Of course, the sentiment on the front of the card was left unfinished – “A little wish that’s fun to make…”  So I had to share the inside as well – “Happy Birthday! Now where’s the cake?!?”

, , , , , ,

This is the last month of Sale-a-bration (SAB)! Can you believe it’s almost over?! I hope you’ve already gotten everything on your wish list, but if not now is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of this awesome event.

And if you haven’t seen the additional SAB items release on February 21st, you need to check them out! My favorite item is the Glimmer Paper assortment pack and I couldn’t wait to use it on this next project!

This thank you card was quick and easy.  The So Very Much Sale-a-bration stamp set makes a big statement on it’s own.  But when paired with glimmer paper (also SAB) and sequin trim, this project really pops!

Before I go, here is the latest farm update:  We definitely have a rejected calf on our hands. I my eldest decided to take the calf in, a big responsibility. However, most of my family ended up being sick last week, so that left me to play nurse to everyone, including the calf. Everyone is now well, our calf is healthy and things are looking good. And while we don’t generally encourage naming of our herd, she has already been dubbed “Ruby” and even comes when called.

Masculine Mallard Watercolor

Tags

, , , , , ,

Our little farm is growing and we were blessed (I think) with twin calves this week!  We are still watching the herd because we’re not quite sure if mama is fully accepting one of the twins.  Tomorrow we’ll know for sure, but if we end up having a little orphan my oldest kiddo has decided to take on the challenge of raising the calf – a big responsibility I’m interested in watching. 🙂

It may be calving season in the pasture, but it is duck season in my stamp room this week! I wanted to use my watercolor pencils, so I selected a few of my favorite stamp sets perfect for watercolor techniques.  And because the Sisters In Stamping theme for this week’s Fabulous Friday is birds, I easily landed on The Wilderness Awaits stamp set.

Masculine Birthday / The Wilderness Awaits stamp set / In the Meadow stamp set / watercolor pencils / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

I’m sure there are plenty of ways to use this set, but it just screams “masculine” to me.  So I immediately paired it with the Guy Greetings and In the Meadow stamp sets.  The mallard obviously needed to be the star of the show on this card, so I used various pencil to get the colors right, then blended them together using my Aqua Painters.  Based on the watercolor results, I pulled in black and Crushed Curry cardstock to highlight the colors further and frame the art.

Masculine Birthday / The Wilderness Awaits stamp set / In the Meadow stamp set / watercolor pencils / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

Fibers and texture are always a bit challenging for masculine cards.  Here I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to enhance the clean lines.  When trying to decide on fibers, I realized that my Gold Sequin Trim was nearby and the thread matched my color palate really well.  So I pulled off about 10-15 sequins and set them to the side for a future project.  Then I trimmed and separated the thread, and incorporated the fibers randomly around my stamped image.

I Love You A Watt!

Tags

, , , , , , ,

There are just a few days before Valentines Day – are you ready?!  Today, I helped my girl prepare treat boxes for her class.  But I couldn’t forget my own Valentine!  With him in mind, I created this masculine card with a bit of humor to show him just how I feel.

I Love You a Watt card / Anniversary card / Valentines Day card / Pun Intended photopolymer stamp set / Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder / 2016-2018 In Color card stock / Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

This Pun Intended stamp set, an exclusive hostess reward, is so much fun.  It can be used for any age group and fits so many occasions!

I Love You a Watt card / Anniversary card / Valentines Day card / Pun Intended photopolymer stamp set / Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder / 2016-2018 In Color card stock / Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

To make these images pop, I stamped the light bulb on both the Whisper White and Peekaboo Peach card stock.  I then fussy-cut the peach colored bulb and glued it to the white.  I then applied Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to the little heart in the bulb to add a bit of shimmer.

I wanted various levels of texture on this card, so I used the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on my Emerald Envy card stock base.  I also took some Basic Black Bakers Twine and peeled apart the pieces.  These pieces of string were then loosely bunched together and attached to the back of the top layers of card stock.
